I bought a 02 TJ

After a few years away from Jeeps I finally convinced my wife to buy a jeep. We bought an 02 TJ w/X package, straight 6. So it's a daily w/ very mild trail use I wanna slap some 31 11.5s on, and some 2" coil sprig spacers. Anyone done this and still got to use their warranty? Thats my main concern, I don't want it voided.


Well it didn't look THAT deep! Hold on I'll tow you out I'll get my jeep only strap.

Re: I bought a 02 TJ

It is my understanding that it is the dealers problem to prove your mods caused the problem. So if you put on big tires and your radio craps out they cant deny your warranty. Conversly if you put on a Long arm kit dont think about getting your suspension warrantied. Its not their equipment any more. Make sense, and Never let those dealers push you around. They will try to tell you its not warrantied tell them to prove it. Hope I helped
enjoy the new jeep

Lots of goodies!

Re: I bought a 02 TJ

Ive have 31's on my 01 tj and have had it in for warranty work, dont know bout the coil spacers. The only problem i had was not cleaning it well enough, the service writer at the local dealer tried to blame the bad parts on dirt.

Re: I bought a 02 TJ

Bad parts on dirt huh thats a good one espically from a company that has built a reputation on it's off road prowess. Anything you TJ owners noticed that failed during your warranty that I should look out for? Common Problems?

Thanks alot
Shawn

Re: I bought a 02 TJ

Well, I can't really tell you about warranties. I think I voided mine a week after I got it. But I did notice that now you'll need to change your sig! Maybe you can buy a chevy/ford only strap![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: I bought a 02 TJ

I have a '00 TJ. I put 32" and the coil spacers on it. It didn't void out the warranty. If I put a full suspension lift on it, then it would be voided.
Problems... the only thing I have had to complain about is that when it is in neutral and the clutch is out, there is a loud rattling sound. Took it to the shop and they said that since another TJ they tested did it to, it must be normal.
Other than that, she handles great!

Re: I bought a 02 TJ

The tubelar headder is gone, now it uses a dual outlet cast manifold that dosn't crack or leak. There is also a tsb for a torque bushing at the tranny mount that is suppose to help stop the transfer of noise with clutch out in neutral. I dosn't stop the noise, just makes it less noticable by not transfering it to the body. I don't think the spacers will void much of the warrenty except possibly the shocks, which should also be changed for the lift.
